NaNoWinter Visual Novel game Jam

#1 Post by ViRiX Dreamcore » Thu Dec 11, 2014 12:02 pm

Hey guys, I was on gamejolt and check out what I found.

http://itch.io/jam/nanowinter2015

It's a game jam just for visual novels.

Would anyone be interested?

It starts in January and goes for the month.

I am planning to be involved in NaNoWinter, and I'm excited to hear the theme this Thursday.

I might be... it depends on some outside factors :) I'll either do this or the summer edition because the traditional NaNoRenO is at a bad time for me.

Yeah I was going to do one with a friend, but he had some things he had to do.

So because of that, I have some extra time. If through out anyone needs some music, let me know. In this small of a time frame, I can compose short pieces about a minute long. Just let me know via PM or twitter @ViRiX_Dreamcore or on my soundcloud (in my signature.)

I do mostly JRPG/electronic/orchestral music... so basically the music you'd find in most JPVNs.

I would have joined this if I had known earlier and didn't have so many commissions on my plate. xD;;

Oh I see! So it's like a game jam for visual novels in the summer? Is it one month long or shorter? How many years have you hosted? c:

Sounds cool!

Damn, only found out about this now. I'd be willing to help someone out with writing or coding something if they wanted to start one for this jam?

I'll totally be keeping an eye out for this in May.

Summer and Winter are shorter than a month. This is my first year.

Question! Must all assets be newly created from scratch during the game jam, or can I use assets that were created beforehand?

I'm thinking of writing something like a prologue for my current VN project if that's allowed.

Assets are accepted whether it's new, old, or even pre-made. As long the project is new and playable.

Man kinda salty my partner couldn't help me out. (he was doing all the art)

Oh well, I'm excited to see what games come out of this. As stated, I'm always happy to help with music if need be. (aside from this weekend which is Global Game Jam)

A summer one huh? I'll also keep my eye on that one as well.
